As a minor, do I have the right to have a legal guardian present?
I was at a party the other night where underage drinking was taking place. After coming in to the house under the suspicion that he "smelled alcohol," the officer asked me how old I was. Since I am 17, the officer let me call my parents. Then, he asked for my ID, to which I told him that I would like to wait until my parent was present since I am a minor. The officer then handcuffed me because he says I was incorrect. In addition, I was never asked if I had consumed any alcohol. As far as the cop knew, I was only present at a party where underage drinking was taking place.

After a sobriety test, the officer asked me if he'd find anything illegal, I said no, he then felt my pockets and pulled out a baggy of marijuana, I didn't consent to a search, and I thought they couldn't take out my personal property without asking ME to do so, (unless it be a weapon) , I showed no sign of danger that would even provoke him to search me, he placed me under arrest and stuck me in the cruiser without reading me my rights THEN asked me to consent to a drug test, which ("not knowing my rights to silence" I agreed to... is there a case here?

Will pre-dated violations affect current unsupervised probation that I was just placed on last week?
I got a first offense non-aggressive DUI in West Virginia in January 2013 - I pleaded a conditional guilty charge because WV let me enter their First Offense DUI Deferral Program where I have to do a mandatory 165 days of interlock and ASAP classes. Upon completion of interlock (around September for me), they will dismiss the charges and then a year from that date, I can motion for my arrest record to be expunged. I got a reckless driving in VA in December 2014 and was convicted/placed on unsupervised probation by VA for the period of April 6, 2015 (my court date) - April 6, 2016. VA doesn't know of my DUI because I entered the deferral program. Therefore, am I at risk of violating my unsupervised probation? I am extremely nervous even though the date of my violation is January 2013
You are in no danger of violating Virginia's unsupervised probation because the DUI in West Virginia occurred before...
